When Jim Carrey made the Grinch, I accepted it, because it's a holiday film and I thought it would be all right (I've still not seen it, but don't think I could enjoy it).
Then Mike Myers - perhaps the most overrated actor in Hollywood and arguably the most pompous - made one of the worst movies ever in The Cat in the Hat. Seriously, was there a redeeming point of that entire film? Why does there have to be innuendo in a kid's film - let alone a classic Dr. Seuss film? Completely unnecessary.
Now, they've started work on Horton Hears a Who. My lord, do we have to destroy every positive memory everyone has of the beloved Dr. Seuss in the name of gleaning a profit for his widow? Don't you think there was a reason he didn't approve of movies being made of his work?
Do we get to anticipate The Lorax, I Had Trouble in Getting to Solla-Sallew (which is my personal favorite), or the 500 hats of Bartholomew Cubbins? Perhaps some braindead director can stretch To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street into 90 minutes of exploitive fun! Do the world a favor and avoid any movies made from Dr. Seuss.
